Brad Linder over at the Liliputing website has kindly created a quick 8 minute run through of some of the features you can expect use in the new Microsoft Windows 10 operating system that was officially unveiled by Microsoft earlier this week.
Microsoft has designed their latest Windows 10 operating system as one product and platform to be used across multiple different devices including smartphones, tablets, desktop PCs, gaming consoles and smart TVs.
If you fancy installing Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 operating system on your PC all you need to do is jump over to the Microsoft website and sign up for the new Windows Insider Program. After which you will be provided with a choice of either 64 or 32-bit versions together with a license key.
Simply burn the downloaded ISO to a blank DVD and install as you would Windows with any system. But do remember that Windows 10 is still currently under development and it’s probably best to install the software on a different machine than your main PC.
Features of the new Windows 10 operating system include:
– Start menu: The familiar Start menu is back, but it brings with it a new customizable space for your favorite apps and Live Tiles.
– Everything runs in a window: Apps from the Windows Store now open in the same format that desktop apps do and can be resized and moved around, and have title bars at the top allowing for maximize, minimize, and close with a click.
– Snap enhancements: You can now have four apps snapped on the same screen with a new quadrant layout. Windows will also show other apps and programs running for additional snapping and even make smart suggestions on filling available screen space with other open apps.
– New task view button: There’s a new task-view button on the taskbar for quick switching between open files and quick access to any desktops you create.
– Multiple desktops: Create desktops for different purposes and projects and switch between these desktops easily and pick up where you left off on each desktop.
– Find files faster: File Explorer now displays your recent files and frequently visited folders making for finding files you’ve worked on is easier.
